Traveling to the state of Jammu and Kashmir in India in winter does not make sense unless you want to enjoy winter sports. Even then, veterans advise against such a travel plan due to the risk of getting stranded due to snowstorms, avalanches and landslides. Far flung regions often get disconnected from the mainstream and helicopter services often end up as the sole means of travel to and from these regions. You may end up getting stranded in the tourist destination of Gulmarg without any means of returning to the state capital if you get stuck in an avalanche.

For those who want to enjoy a bit of cold without consequent risks, early March and late November are must visit months. A visit in March will help you enjoy the snow and cold that is yet to melt away because of the onset of summer. November will help you enjoy the cold and snow without the risk of facing full brunt of the harsh winter in Jammu and Kashmir.

If you want to enjoy moderate cold and access to all tourist facilities, travel from April to October is the best option. You can enjoy cold climate and refreshing winds and visit almost all popular destinations in the state. You can time your visit to coincide with the Amarnath trek where devotees pay obeisance to the Lord of Destruction by a long and treacherous trek through the mountains.

You can also visit the Vaishno Devi temple, personification of the divine Mother said to solve all problems of her children, especially those related to infertility. For those who want a bit of plain old sight seeing, there are numerous road trips to all parts of the state from Srinagar. Autumn in the cold state of Jammu and Kashmir is a particularly beautiful sight with the entire tree belt getting a golden brown hue.
